I would personally drop Dragon Tempest , you want near dragon tribal for that to be worth the slot. Athreos, God of Passage , Ob Nixilis, the Fallen , Sower of Discord , Angelic Field Marshal , Tyrant's Familiar and of course Avacyn, Angel of Hope .
Angelic is almost a must since she helps the whole team

Angels are a very heavy tribe in CMC, and the mana curve of their deck is also very high. I would advise to put lighter and more effective cards for the strategy in place of heavy cards with appeal only to Flavor.

If you want to go to the angel sub-theme with life gain, then why are you not playing Lyra Dawnbringer? Pump the angels and give them lifelink. Herald of War can also help you get the board filled with angels.
Just too bad there is no cheap thing to prevent all your creatures to die from a single board wipe! Something in the form of a permanent that gives your team indestructible like Sephara, Sky's Blade! Too bad that there is no angel you can play for single mana just like Sephara, Sky's Blade with tapping a few creatures you made with something like Lingering Souls. Ow, wait there is a good one for that... !Sephara, Sky's Blade!
What I also think is that you are hard to attack well. You will have a field and you can hit hardback with revenge. Becoming the monarch is the way to get card draw. Court of Grace & Court of Ambition can help you with that.
You are trying to slowly gain value, get a big board and kill your opponents over the long game. How about you stop others from gaining life with Erebos, God of the Dead.
If you play multiple colours you can use Field of the Dead :).

"Lieutenant" abilities (such as that of Angelic Field Marshal) will work so long as you control either of your partner commanders.
The rule in case you're curious:
702.123e If an effect refers to your commander while you have two commanders, it refers to either one. If an effect causes you to perform an action on your commander and it could affect both, you choose which it refers to at the time the effect is applied.
Hope this helps!!

I would up the land count to 35-37 to make sure you hit land drops.
I’ve always liked Illusory Angel since it is the only mono blue angel I’ve ever seen.
Angelic Field Marshal is a good one for if you have Traft out.
Aegis Angel could synergize with Traft to keep him around.
I’ve got a Geist of Saint Traft deck focused of exaltion/aura voltron and an Aurellia angel tribal if you’d want to check those out. Although I don’t think I’ve put my Traft deck on tapped out yet.

Some more ideas:
Angelic Field Marshal, because cantrips rarely give vigilance.
Bishop of Wings, because surprise, Feather is an angel. Also, you don't have many creatures to benefit from all this good stuff aside from Feather, so I included some more angel stuff to buff Feather or receive bonuses too.

I'd suggest, out of cards in your collection already, Swiftfoot Boots , Swords to Plowshares , Rampant Growth , Boros Charm , Generous Gift and Smothering Tithe in the deck, all are excellent cards for pretty much every Commander deck with their colors, and worth a try. If I made a Ghired deck, or almost any R/W/G Commander deck for that matter, I'd likely include all of those.
You could maybe use some more card draw, Guardian Project is a favorite of mine.
Having played against a Ghired deck a lot, I noticed the deck got a lot more efficient when it became focused more on Ghired himself and less on some of the other token producers taking up space. A card like Tendershoot Dryad for example has little synergy with Ghired. Great in a go-wide type of deck, but Ghired wants big stuff, having nothing to populate but a Saproling would be a shame. Plus, as a five-drop it's competing with Ghired to be cast on the same turn.
I'm curious about your inclusion of Johan as well. Awesome Darth Maul lookin art aside, is it really that necessary to grant vigilance? If so, other cards like Heliod, God of the Sun , Brave the Sands , or Angelic Field Marshal all do it more efficiently.
I'm curious, are Rienne, Angel of Rebirth and Mayael the Anima working well in gameplay? Both have cool effects, but are fairly situational, so it's best to pay attention to how much those effects will actually help in gameplay. If it's not enough, there's plenty of other cards that will be effective.
Anyway, sorry to ramble on. It's a cool deck and definitely more cohesive than my early commander decks! Hope I could be some help, and have fun populating rhinos and wurms!

Thanks for the follow-up, Zerraphon! I actually used to play Angelic Field Marshal , but it actually got cut after it was a vanilla 3/3 for 4 too often! I didn't like how dependent it was on having Kestia: The Aura out to be of any real value. Serra's Guardian certainly costs more (and I'm still annoyed at it not having a foil printing), but I quite like how it serves an immediate role as soon as it hits the table, and isn't dependent on me having Kestia out to do so!
Serra's Guardian has actually been weirdly effective. I often consider cutting it for a Reconnaissance or something of the sort, but every time I draw it, it pulls its weight and more. Really appreciate your advice though!
